VARIOUS ARTISTS White Lace & Strange (Heavy Psych And Power Fuzz From The USA 68-72) (2007)

White Lace & Strange (2007)
Truth In Advertising.

If you’re the type that came of age during the Cream/Experience era, or if you just get a chubby when you hear the words “heavy psych and power fuzz,” then you’re in the right place. This is the obscure stuff, originally issued in 2004, then re-issued in 2007. The only names I recognized were Road (Noel Redding’s band) and Illinois Speed Press.

    Hi Willard
    The “Genesis” in question was actually an American band who broke up around the same time as the British one was gaining traction. It’s a convoluted story, but Amazon provides the short version:
    “Not to be confused with the ”other” Genesis, featuring Phil Collins. Originally released in 1968, a… classic fusion of melodic songwriting. Leader Jack Ttanna had played in psych legends The Sons Of Adam, while guitarist Kent Henry would go on to join Steppenwolf, and their superb musicianship is showcased…(on) the only one the band ever released.”

    They were cool too. Thanks for this!

    Heavy Power Fuzz from The USA! “White Lace And Strange” was covered by Nirvana at KAOS 89.3 FM Olympia WA in 1987. With The Lights Out Box Set CD 1. Happy christmas, happy new year. From there to here. Happy new year, happy new year, happy new year…

    Hey Willard.. great post, as usual. Any chance of putting up Vol. 2 of this series… “The Room of Loud Sound”…. or any of the other comps that Nick Soloaman has been involved with, like “Realistic Patterns” ?
